Tapestry Collection by Hilton has opened its 1st hotel in Europe. Embracing the distinct culture of their local neighbourhoods, the hotel joins a global portfolio of almost 60 Tapestry Collection by Hilton properties.
Atocha Hotel Madrid is located just a short walk from some of the most famous landmarks in Spain, including the museums that form Madrid’s Golden Triangle of Art–the Museo del Prado, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza and Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. Fans of historical architecture will appreciate nearby Palacio de Cristal, located in the middle of Buen Retiro Park, Plaza Mayor and the Royal Palace of Madrid.
Atocha Hotel Madrid, steeped in local history, consists of 46 rooms and takes its inspiration from esparto–or atocha–grass weaving–a technique traditionally used for basketry in southern Spain.
Esparto merchandise formerly made its entry into the city via nearby Madrid Atocha railway station–historically the “Southern Gate” of Madrid. In a nod to its heritage, Atocha Hotel Madrid features nature-inspired décor and rooms decked out with rattan furniture. Upon arrival, guests will receive a handmade and personalised esparto plant gift.
Facilities include a fitness centre and a 19 square meter meeting room.
